Chicken Marsal-WHAT?

Oh my hubby...bless his heart. He has gotten so adventerous when it comes to food since he met me (ha, sort of). Things that I grew up eating are new to him and it's so fun to watch him try new things and like them. Tonight's dinner was something he hadn't had before until we got married and now it's one of his faves. I've loved this dish forever. My mom made it often. So light and yummy. Enjoy!
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. dried marjoram, crushed
4 chicken breasts, pounded 1/4 in. thick
2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1/4 cup sliced green onion
3 tb. butter
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup dry marsala wine
Hot, cooked pasta (I use linguine)
Combine flour, marjoram and salt and black pepper to taste in small bowl. Lightly coat chicken pieces with flour mixture and shake off excess.
In a large skillet cook mushrooms and green onions in 1 tablespoon of butter over medium-high heat until tender; remove from skillet. In the same skillet cook chicken in remaining 2 tablespoons of butter for 5 to 6 minutes, turning to brown evenly.
Remove skillet from heat. Return mushrooms and green onions to skillet. Carefully add broth and wine to skillet. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season sauce to taste with additional salt and pepper. Transfer chicken to a serving platter. Spoon mushroom mixture over chicken. Serve over pasta.
To save time, I buy the chicken breasts already pounded thin. Gotta love those "thin and fancy" breasts! HA!

Sounds great. I have been wanting to try a chicken marsala recipe but have yet to buy the wine. I guess some day I will get around to doing so.
